AUGUSTA, Ga. -
The University of Wyoming Cowgirl golf team played the last competitive round of their 2005 fall season on Tuesday at the Lady Jaguar Invitational. UW knocked four strokes off of their team score from the previous day, with a 340 (+52), but could not avoid a last place finish of 13 teams at the 36-hole event hosted by Augusta State University.
The host Jaguars won both the team and individual titles. In the final round Augusta State shot the only team total of the event under 300, a mark of 299 (+11), which gave them a 16-stroke winning margin over second place Notre Dame. The Jaguars' Lauren Smith edged Notre Dame's Noriko Nakazaki by one stroke to claim individual medalist honors.
Wyoming freshman Mikala Henzlik and sophomore Laura Mengelkamp each finished at 165 (+21) and tied for 40th place of 67 golfers. UW sophomore Kaelee Aegerter totaled 175 (+31), while junior Whitney Hernandez shot 179 (+35).
The two-day tournament was played at the par-72, 6,094-yard Forest Hills Golf Club in Augusta.
With the conclusion of their fall season, Wyoming now does not compete again until they travel to Sedona, Ariz., Feb. 25-26 for the Northern Arizona Red Rocks Invitational.
